    I need help with Polaris 1200 head

    I recently bought a 1996 SLTX that has a 1200 engine. One of the heads were damaged when a piston failed. I think that this a Polaris head, but not one that can be ordered new. I was wondering if anybody has a good used one or can find one somewhere. Any thoughts. Thanks. Larry

    Whats wrong with the head?? if there is pitting then its ok to run it once you repair the pison and cylinder. You're going to have to figure out what caused the piston failure so it doesn't happen again, otherwise you might as well just give me the money.. I'll put it to good use

    Is there a part number on it?

    1996 SLTX was a 1050 motor, not a 1200 (1165ccc)

    According to the Polaris Industries Parts cross-reference and diagrams, the 1996 1050 cylinder head was only used on the 1996 SLTX and the Hurricane;

    3022034 HEAD,CYLINDER, 81MM

    1997 SLTX (and some 1997-2000 900, 1050, and 700 engines) used two of these heads;
    3022050 HEAD, CYL,81MM,PWC

    and one of these (also used on some other 1996-1999 900, 20150 and 700 engines);
    3022025 HEAD,CYL,81MM DIA

    that looks like a Factory Polaris race dome probrably 92 octane or higher you need to check your compression

    The original motor was replaced with a 2001 1200 motor. I will get the numbers and try to get an exact model. It is an 84mm bore. I found a picture on PWC today of a head just like it and it was supposed to be a Polaris racing dome thats no longer in production.
